I enjoy these easily read novels because the characters are easy to like. They are simple men, yet philosophically, black and white, good and bad complex, no gray areas. It will be a shame to see this series end after book # 4.

Parker shows his western prowess once again as we continue our time in the lives of Cole and Hitch. It's another trying tale, in another dusty coming of age town. An old character returns, and while you expect more of the same, that's not the case. This new town has new characters, with new goals and ambitions, presenting new issues for Cole and Hitch in the old west. It moves quick, with many climatic points, although the ending is fairly predictable. Never the less, it's a great read, but do yourself a favor and read Appaloosa and Resolution before you open Brimstone.

The first in this western series by Robert Parker was Appalosa. This was made into a movie with excelletn casting. The second book, Resolution,, continued the plot in another town. This book is a further continuation, and somewhat of a resolution of the relationship betwen Virgil Cole and his loved one. I hope they make movies of the latest two. These are westerns in the "Gunsmoke" genre. A good read.

What a great read! This was an actual 'you can't put it down' book as I polished it off in less than a day. Great follow-up to Appaloosa and I'm thinking there will be another. At least I hope so; fine characters, dialogue, etc. Yes, it's an edgy, semi-predictable Western in the flavor of Lonesome Dove, but that can't be that bad can it?

Although they don't mention their hats much, both Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch qualify to wear white ones. In this outing, they are mostly in the business of saving not-so-fair maidens from fates worse than death, keeping the peace in the saloon town of Brimstone, and trying to process the first situation either of them can recall in which neither of them quite knows what Virgil is going to do. Quintessential Parker.

Storyline follows the same path as the previous two books but still a fun read.

Marshall Cole & Deputy Hitch have rid the country of another clan of evildoers and also rescued a fair damsel in distress. This would be another excellent choice in the series from Mr. Parker to select to read.

This second book in the series as good as if not better than the first. Fast read, straight to the heart of the matter and holds you there until the last page. It leaves you wanting more.

Played to perfection by Ed Harris and Viggo Mortenson in Apaloosa, Virgil Cole and Everitt Hitch are soft hearted dealers of death. Fabulous characters abound. Great dialogue. Only problem is bang for the buck, but I say treat yourslf and try the firt one.
